CONSIDERING divers shires in this nation give divers names to one and the same herb, and that the common name which it bears in one county, is not known in another; I shall take the pains to set down all the names that I know of each herb: pardon me for setting that name first, which is most common to myself. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen A view on Medieval/Renaissance Herbalism and Medicine 21. November 2000
Von Kim Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf
I first heard of this book as being an excellent primary source for herbs and herbalism from the 16/17th Centuries.

It is very comprehensive and aside from a listing of each herb and its properties, it has several sections teaching the fundiments of medicine of the time. It covers:

* how a herb is assigned to a planet
* how a degree of strength is determined and what it means
* what 'humours' it affects and what 'humours' (bodily fluid systems) are
* and much much more.

If you are looking for a source to use for alternate medicine then this is NOT the best starting place. There are better works of a modern nature out there for that. However, as a back-up resource or a way of learning about the time when medicine was still holistic and not too scentific then this is he book for you.

The Wordsworth edition is in paperback and easy on the pocket. This publisher takes certain classic works and keeps them in print in small runs from time to time by demand. This means that although the book may be not immediately available, it will beome available again in the near future.

I hope this helps you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen 17th Century Herbal Remedies 25. Juni 2005
Von Dew - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book played an important and yet controversial role between formal medicine and herbalism.

Nicholas Culpeper(1616-1654) studied medicine at Cambridge, but gave up his studies when his fiancée was killed in a thunderstorm. Culpeper eventually set up his own healing practice near London. He was moved by the suffering of the poor and decided to help the them by selling medicines to them at a very cheap price and encouraged them to use local species.

In the 17th century, the physicians were leaning more toward non-botanical medications such as mercury, arsenic iron and sulfur etc. It is most likely that the physicians of that day resented Culpeper's popularity and considered him a threat, since be made their secrets accessible to the common person--therefore they tried to discredit him.

The people of England due to his genuine concern for them loved Culpeper. The colonist took his herbal to the New World as a medical reference and guide of when to plant and harvest these medical plants.

His mistake was he threatening the near monopoly on medical knowledge that the College of Physicians enjoyed.

This book contains a comprehensive description of nearly all herbs along with descriptions of their medicinal properties and instructions on preparing and using them to treat many different illnesses. It also included precise botanical illustrations. For 300 years this book was the standard for herbal remedies.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Culpeper's Complete Herbal 8. Januar 2000
Von Chris Belgum - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you have an interest in Herbs and their culinary, mystic and medicinal usages, both modern and historical, then this IS the book for you. It is beautifully illustrated and text is written in both medieval English and modern English.
Each plant (it includes some fruits and trees as well) is pictured and the habitat is described. Along with each description is any affinity to a ruling planet as well.
My only critisism is that it contains a great deal of jargon, you will need to read up on herbalism per se to understand how to make tinctures etc. That said the book is a reference to the plants not the art.
I have had my (well thumbed copy)for over 10 years now and it is a constant companion to my interests in the natural power of the Earth and her fruits.

Von Sabelle Bloodrayne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this for a friend of mine as it is the in the top 5 of world wide best ranked ever written Herbals. When I saw this and its amazing detail and references, I had to have one for myself... It was sent in a fast ship . The seller did an excellent job of keeping the book free from damage during the ship and I would buy from this seller again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Best Herbals I Could Recommend. 13. Dezember 2012
Von Raiin D'Elore - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I actually own the Wordsworth Editions, Ltd. 1995 edition of this book, and did not purchase it from Amazon. But I still feel the need to write a review about Culper's work.

Hands down, this is still my go-to Herbal to date. Even as well worn and falling apart at the seams as it is. Of course, as out-dated as some of the medical information of it is in the beginning and it should be used in conjunction with more modern materials... It's a great companion book I often use it in conjunction with my other Herbals to cross reference materials. And still, to this day, it's got some of the most inclusive information on the herbs listed compared to even the majority of my modern Herbals.

I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Herbal Medicine, Holistically or Scientifically, or even for personal use.
